Module 5: Creating awareness on validation of the acquired competences

Tips and tricks

Be sure to give enough time for portfolio work and self-assessment. It is important to have the assessor present for clarifying standards during the self-assessment phase. The methods of validation of non-formal and informal learning include:

  • Knowledge portfolio
  • Europass or CV
  • Observation
  • Tests and examinations
  • Reflection in and on practice
  • Interviews and talks

Validation can lead to formal qualification, to qualifications that are different from those awarded by education and training authorities, to some form of certification without a qualification and to access formal education and training courses.
